Yvonne Strahovski on Her Broadway Debut, Her Dexter Arc and More [Twitterview]

Via: vanityfair.com: Nearly a year after Yvonne Strahovski retired her breakout role as C.I.A. agent Sarah Walker during Chuck’s series finale, the Australian-raised  actress is busier than ever.

This month alone, Strahovski made her Broadway debut in a revival of Clifford Odet’s Golden Boy and became romantically entangled with television’s most notorious serial killer during an arc on Dexter. Later this month, Strahovski continues her momentum with a role in Guilt Trip, the holiday comedy starring Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand.

Amidst her frenzied schedule, Strahovski took a break on Monday afternoon to answer fan questions in one of VF.com’s first-ever “Twitterviews,” moderated by Vanity Fair’s West Coast editor, Krista Smith. Below, highlights of the Q&A (with spelling and punctuation spiffed up slightly for easier reading):

Krista Smith: So excited to chat—how was your opening night on Broadway #GoldenBoy?
Yvonne Strahovski: Fantastic, overwhelming, exhilarating and full of firsts!!!

@stranger94 asks: Have you ever thought about directing a film for the big or small screen?

I have def thought about directing but probably not right now.

@ymblue32 asks: Do you find it hard/easy to watch your own work?

I’m so used to watching myself on screen now that it isn’t usually a big deal. Only sometimes I feel weird .

@marissaeisele asks: Does the #GoldenBoy cast have a ritual before every performance?

Not together as a cast but we all individually have funny things we HAVE to do before the curtain goes up .

@settleprecious asks: What is the #1 thing on your bucket list?

Trekking through the Himalayas in Nepal and laying my eyes on Mt. Everest.

@chuckingout asks: What was it like playing a pregnant woman for the movie #GuiltTrip?

So fun! I love wearing the preggers suit and having my hair brown—a totally different look for me hmmmm .

Smashing my head through fake glass when I fought DeKay in the kitchen in that flashback episode. I kept laughing.

@juliewmiller asks: On Dexter, you play a serial killer’s love interest. What is the scariest trait seen in a real-life boyfriend?

Thankfully no bf has ever wanted 2 kill me (as far as i know) worse than a bad argument .

A Chuck movie. Hmm. A lot of powers that be would have to agree and make it happen!!!
